From the useless trivia file, Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has concluded its annual poll of the planet's sexiest vegetarians, and former Hong Kong diva Faye Wong (pictured) has topped this year's female list for the Asia-Pacific region. The famously moody artist (not enough protein?) beat out mainland actress Zeng Li and last year's veggie hottie Maggie Quigley. The votes were reportedly counted from Peta's website from a month-long survey. If we're a little suspicious of the result it's because Wong has been out of the spotlight for a while, raising her child in Beijing.

Among the guys, Bollywood mainstay Amitabh Bachan was the sexiest male vegetarian even though he's 65. There are no Hong Kong guys for a reason. Who can resist when, at the launch of every film, you get a chance to indulge in an entire slab of crunchy and tasty roast piglet at the ceremonial good-luck ritual?
